‘SOTU Prom Night 2011’ Update and Quote of the Day

The State of the Union address & congressional prom night is just a couple of days away, and the kids are getting giddier by the day:

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the chamber, told “FOX News Sunday” that he and newly elected Republican Sen. Mark Kirk from his home state would sit together on Tuesday.

“I’m bringing the popcorn; he’s bringing a Coke with two straws,” Durbin said. “Just kidding, of course.”

Yeah, he was only joking — they’ll use the same straw.

Yesterday I mentioned that John McCain hadn’t yet secured a date to SOTU Prom 2011, but he won’t be going stag after all:

Another conservative Republican, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, told the same program he would be sitting with Democratic Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico, a longtime friend. And Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa tweeted Sunday that his “date” for the speech will be Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon.

After the speech at the dance, watch for a jealous Russ Feingold to burst through the doors, slip past security and cut in on Udall during Lionel Ritchie’s “Truly.”

The Republicans who agreed to take part in this are like hacky sacks: easy to kick around and they get played by liberals.

Update: My favorite bipartisan pairing: King Weiner. Coincidentally, that also used to be Bill Clinton’s Secret Service code name.
